16 Easy-to-Build Projects for the Home and Garden Women woodworkers are one of the fastest growing segments of the do-it-yourself niche, but until now they have had little resources to support their community and build their skills. This book written by Linda Hendry, one of America's most accomplished woodworkers, will guide other women, step-by-step, through 16 projects proving that workshops and power tools are NOT just for men anymore. The book begins with a "Getting Started" section in which the author explains basic woodworking concepts and provides an overview of wood, tools, safety and finishing techniques. This section is designed to build the reader's confidence and features full-color photographs and easy-to-understand language geared specifically toward the female reader. At the heart of this book are 16 easy-to-build projects for the home and garden. Whether the reader is looking to build a simple utensil rack, a child's easel or a decorative sofa table, this book offers a variety of projects at multiple skill levels. All projects are made with basic woodworking tools (router, scroll saw, drill, etc.) and can be completed in a weekend.
